Gerdau Huntington, Heritage Days 2017 sponsor

Posted: Friday, May 19, 2017

The Huntington County Chamber of Commerce along with area organizations and businesses will celebrate Huntington Heritage Days Wednesday, June 14 through Sunday, June 18. The corporate sponsor of this year’s event is Gerdau Huntington Facility, 25 Commercial Road. Gerdau is one of the largest suppliers of special steel in the world and the leading producer of long steel in the Americas.

Gerdau’s special steel North American division specializes in producing special bar quality (SBQ) steel for the automotive, commercial vehicle, agricultural and energy markets. The business offers its customers a wide array of heat treated and value-added processed products. Mike Cash is the plant general manager of Gerdau’s Huntington Facility and Kendall Mickley is division controller.

The Heritage Days theme, The 40s: Liberty, Democracy, Dignity,” will give those participating in Heritage Days an opportunity to show patriotism for the country and in the local community. The theme is part of the ongoing effort to “explore our heritage.” Heritage Days begins on Flag Day 2017, June 14 with a variety of activities. The official Heritage Days colors are red, white and blue. Parade entries and other Heritage Days activities are encouraged to incorporate the theme/colors in the entry or event.
